How to Start a Small Fashion Line from Home

Posted on

When you browse through the designer clothing labels at your local department store, you are probably shocked by some of the prices you see. It’s true — there is a lot of money to be made in the fashion world. If you have an eye for style and a hand for sewing, you just might be able to cash in on a little bit of that money by creating your own unique clothing line. The stylish labels we offer here at It’s Mine! will make the perfect finishing touch to your creations.

The first step in starting your own little line of fashions is to determine what kind of clothing you will be making. One of the easiest pieces to start with is a regular t-shirt. You can embellish them with different designs, jewels, pictures, and much more. T-shirts also come in a wide range of colors, so you can make designs for boys and girls, as well as for just about any occasion.

Your line of fashions should have a unique name — something that will help spread the word about your designs. You can find a way to incorporate your own name into the brand, or you can go for something completely original. Just make sure the brand name reflects your personal style. Our labels are available in numerous styles and designs, so you will have no trouble finding the perfect label to represent your small business.

Now that you know what you are going to make, and you know what your brand name will be, you can start designing your fashions. You want to create a demand for your products, so begin by giving your fashions as gifts to friends and family. If they go over well enough, word will soon get around about your unique designs. It is also a good idea to utilize social media for letting people know about your products. Facebook and Twitter are two of the best places to start, as well as Instagram and LinkedIn.

When pricing your designs, be reasonable. These are unique fashions made by your very own hands. So, while you don’t want to overcharge your customers, you also don’t want to shortchange yourself. Consider the time and supplies used while making each product, to ensure that you make a small profit from each item sold, rather than just barely breaking even.

Finally, if your fashion designs fail to take off and make you the next runway sensation, at least you can still give them as gifts. Everyone loves a unique gift, and nothing says “I love you” more than a one-of-a-kind, handmade gift. You can still use our labels, so the recipient will always remember who made it. You can even add a special message on the label.

To learn more about our selection of labels and the various uses for them, contact us at It’s Mine! From beginner fashions to the runway, our labels are sure to help make your designs a big hit — even if it’s only within your circle of friends and family.

Easy Ideas for Personalized Valentine’s Day Gifts

Posted on

Valentine’s Day will soon be here, and what better way to say “I love you” than with a personalized, homemade gift? Our name labels give you the perfect way to personalize your handmade gift without spending a fortune. Here are some easy Valentine’s gifts to show your loved ones just how much you love them.

  • Decorated T-Shirts — It only takes a few minutes to take a plain shirt and transform it into a masterpiece. You can add some “bling,” or you can take a paint pen and write a unique message. You can also iron-on different images. Add a name label, and your gift is ready to give.
  • Personalized Vases — Flowers are a standard gift for Valentine’s Day. With some creativity, you can personalize this traditional gift, and make it more meaningful. Choose a vase that gives you plenty of room for adding embellishments, such as gluing on crystals and jewels. Even when the flowers are gone, your loved one will still have a beautiful vase to cherish.
  • Unique Cards — Nothing shows your feelings more than a touching card with some heartfelt words written inside. You can also decorate the card to make it even more personal. Just make sure that you take the time to write from your heart to ensure that your loved one truly understands how much they mean to you.
  • Stuffed Animals — While stuffed animals aren’t handmade, you can spice them up with some sassy embellishments to make them more personal. For instance, you can give your wife a stuffed bear with an expensive scarf wrapped around his neck.
  • Jewelry — Jewelry is another traditional Valentine’s Day gift. However, you don’t have to spend a fortune on diamonds to give this gift. You can buy jewelry-making supplies, and create some one-of-a-kind for your special someone. You can make everything from necklaces and bracelets, to rings and earrings.
  • Poetry — Forget the flowers, candy, and jewelry. If you really want to show someone how much you love them, consider writing some sincere poetry. This is an “old-school” gift, something that many people don’t even think about anymore. It only takes a little bit of thought and creativity to come up with a romantic poem. Then, you can write it on fancy cardstock and create a beautiful gift.

As you can see, it is not that hard to come up with personalized, homemade gifts for Valentine’s Day. Using existing products, such as stuffed animals and vases, helps speed up the process. As long as you find a way to make the gift from your heart, the recipient is sure to love it. Adding one of our labels also helps you personalize the gift, and it ensures that the recipient will always remember where the gift came from.

Be Ready for Giving Gifts All Year Round

Posted on

The holiday shopping season is coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean that you have to be finished buying gifts. The few days right after a major holiday are the perfect time to invest in gifts. It is also a great time to buy holiday items at bargain prices for the next year. When you take advantage of these great deals, you can easily have a variety of gifts ready for the coming year. All you need to do is add name labels before wrapping, and you have gifts for every birthday in 2015.

It may seem strange to buy gifts in bulk, but it really is a good idea. Think about one of the most popular gift ideas for Christmas — bath products. You can find these little sets on the shelves of any department store. Now, think about how many birthdays, special occasions, and “just because” occasions you can take care of just by purchasing these bundles in bulk. You will be getting a great price because they are on sale after the holidays, and you won’t have to worry about forgetting someone’s special day — you will always have the perfect gift ready and waiting!

Before you give a gift, you can add a unique label. This helps to give the gift a personal touch. You can include the recipient’s name on the label, or you can simply have your own name, so they know where the gift came from. It’s Mine offers a wide selection of labels, including stick-on labels, to make it easy for you to separate your gift from the rest. Our labels come in various designs, and you can add several lines of text, if needed. You can also choose from different types of font, so, if the gift is extra special, you can make an extra special label using a beautiful designer font that makes the label pop.

After-the-holiday sales offer much more than simply bath products. You can find great deals on toys, clothes, electronics, shoes, and much more. Stores need to clear out their holiday stock to make room for the next big shopping season. You will also find great deals on holiday decorations, which makes this a great time to stock up for next year’s holiday season. You can get holiday-themed décor for a fraction of the price you will pay when the season rolls back around. Handy stick-on labels are ideal for storing these new decorations — just put them in a box, and add a label stating the contents.

Even though you may be feeling a bit of sadness at the thought of the holidays being gone for another year, you can still get some joy out of saving lots of money. The next big shopping season is just around the corner, so now is the time to save valuable dollars and stock up on gifts and decorations for the next year. Don’t forget to check out the wide selection of labels available at It’s Mine! to complete your gifts and decorations.

Personalized Gifts for the Day of Love

Posted on

Once we ring in the New Year, it will be time to get ready for Valentine’s Day. Instead of waiting until the last minute to get your significant other a gift, consider one of the following ideas. This list is full of easy gifts you can use to show your love on that special day. Our clothing labels also make it easy to personalize some of these gifts, so your special someone will always think of you when they see the gift.

  • His and hers pillowcases — This easy gift can be whipped up in just a few minutes. You can buy pillowcases in any color, then simply stitch names onto the case. You can also be creative, and stitch some romantic sayings. Adding a label gives the pillowcase its finishing touch.
  • Pre-planned dates — Every couple should have a least one date night each month. Plan all of the dates for the next year, and give them as a gift. Your significant other can read each one and have something to look forward to — or you can make date night a surprise by choosing a new one every month without knowing what it will be.
  • Coupons — This is a tried-and-true gift. Make a book of special coupons that only your special someone can use. The coupons can include simple things, such as breakfast in bed, and also romantic things, such as candlelit bubble baths. You can add a whimsical stick-on label to give the coupons a polished look.
  • Picture frame notes — For this gift, all you need is an empty picture frame with the glass. You can write on the glass different messages every day to make your partner feel your love all year round. The writing will wipe away with a rag, leaving the glass ready for a new message. Place the frame on your partner’s side of the bed, so he/she will see it first thing every morning.
  • Points of interest — This gift requires only a map of the world. Using pushpins, mark every special location relating to you and your mate. These can include the first place you met, location of your first date, your wedding venue, etc. Also include, using different colored pins, locations that you dream of seeing with your mate. This map will be a visual display of the history of your relationship, as well as where you want to see the relationship go.
  • Flowers with a twist — Instead of just buying a bouquet of roses, give your flowers a little something special. Include a tiny trinket in the vase. If jewelry is on your gift list, add a ring to the stem of one of the flowers, or intricately wind a necklace around the stems. Your partner will love finding the additional gift hidden within the stems and petals.

As you can see, you don’t have to spend a fortune on Valentine’s Day for your mate. All you need to do is think outside of the box, and use your imagination. With a little creativity, you can give your special someone a truly heartwarming gift that displays your love. Be sure to let It’s Mine! take care of all your labeling needs for Valentine’s Day.

Special Gifts for Winter Birthday Babies

Posted on

The holiday season is in full swing, which can, unfortunately, leave some people out in the cold. People with birthdays that fall in the month of November, December, and January are often overlooked. It’s not because friends and family want to forget — it’s more that the holiday madness takes over. Fortunately, with a little creativity and some labels for clothing, you can give your loved ones great gifts for their winter birthday — gifts that won’t cost you a fortune and which will make them feel appreciated.

When you make your own gifts and personalize them with labels, you are giving more than just a present. You are giving a little piece of yourself, and you are letting the recipient know that they are truly important in your life. Anyone can grab a card and a cheap bottle of perfume or cologne to give as a gift. But putting in the time and effort to make a personalized gift shows that you are giving from your heart. Here are some great, easy gift ideas that you can whip up in a flash.

  • Personalized Stockings — If someone has a birthday before Christmas, you can make a personalized stocking to give as a gift. You don’t have to make the actual stocking, although, with a bit of material and a pattern, you can make one with ease. You can buy a stocking from any store and decorate it. Be creative with the decorations. For instance, if the recipient loves animals, iron on some cute animal pictures. Don’t forget to add one of our labels, so they will always remember where it came from.
  • Personalized T-Shirts — Another easy gift to whip up is a personalized shirt. You can buy t-shirts in any color, and add your own personal touches. Again, be creative with the decorations. Some easy ideas including adding “bling,” patches, pictures, and beadwork. Add your name label, and your gift is ready.
  • Picture Collages — It only takes a little bit of time to gather some cherished photos and create a fabulous collage. You can copy the pictures and glue them to a large piece of poster board. You can also go a step further, and have the photos screen-printed onto a piece of fabric. Choose pictures that mean something to the recipient, such as old childhood photos or family pictures through the years.
  • Movie Basket — Another quick, easy gift is a movie basket. All you need is a basket, which you can purchase from almost any store. Then, grab a few good DVDs, a couple of bags of microwave popcorn, and slap on a label. Include some movies that you know the recipient loves, and choose the most buttery popcorn you can find — gifts are a time for indulgence!

As you can see, it only takes a little bit of thought to create the perfect gift for someone with a winter birthday. Then, they will feel extra special because their birthday wasn’t overlooked, and you will have a full heart knowing that you honored them on their special day.
